introducing an ordinance that will require the city's two largest law enforcement agencies, san francisco police department as well is the sharpest department to expand not only a type of information that is collected and recorded but also when it is collected. here is some facts for you that i want to help anchor this conversation. first, after the american -- for drug times 19 more -- mentions more than any of her race in san francisco in african-american women in san francisco police arrest rates 13 times higher than any other place. overall, african-americans san franciscans arrested 7.3 times more often in than other cities in the state of california. this ordinance am introducing would require the name, age, race, gender, gender identity to be collected not only during traffic stops but also any time either department -- either of
10:32 pm
the apartments detained were stopped for questioning were searches in individual. this information collected will do a couple of things. the information collected will also include a few other items. first the name and badge number of all officers the results of the contact for example, was arrest was at a citation or warning was it an incident report made. i think it is also very important to note that when proposing here is not new summary data is already being collected by the city of oakland, city of berkeley, as well as new york city. with this reporting requirements i hope to quell some of the unintentionalhas led to the
10:33 pm
outcry that we have seen in baltimore that was even ferguson it is very important for us in balancing this discussion, one that we have are profound discussion the land-use committee, as we work to find appropriate number of police officers to keep our citizens safe. now i want to take a moment and always command and recognize our american men and women the police and sheriffs departments and frankly, all of our first responders. but this what this ordinance, to introduce additional oversight and transparency entered bills the trust. committee once had with our law enforcement departments making this information availabledoes rallying gets up

was due to trees. is that a small portion of significant portion? >> there were a number -- i could give you a percentage of how many trees were dressed in our particular year but it is significant but given the number of properties that were repaired and a number of top people that had issues that came up today i would say that a program is largely successful safeguarding the public right-of-way even from trees causing damage. as you may know in the city and county of san francisco, trees are either maintained by that of property owner or maintained by the city as a whole. the sidewalk inspection repair program goes through and repairs sidewalks in the public right-of-way, and

thursday, june 18. it is called --, does (want to be sure that you and your constituents and the public know it is, at a cost. that cost is not just millions of dollars. it is also the loss of half the space for bound magazines within the library. that represents a serious reduction in accessibility, tens of thousands of magazines that were available to everyone on the shelf on the fifth floor are now unavailable to browsing. the public is only able to see these magazines upon specific written request for specific issues and dates and in most cases the 24-hour wait. we are not supposed, let us be clear -- were not opposed to the teen center as such, but we think there were an alternative alternatives for its placement. for example, in the library café space or in any city

treatment of residents in the city and county of san francisco. these residents are among our city's most vulnerable citizens and many are unable to articulate their needs. a letter of concern to the state regulatory agency would be a start. i feel very strongly that the city needs to involve itself in making sure that the citizens who are so vulnerable are receiving adequate care. i need to report discriminatory practices and preferential treatment at my board and care. preferential treatment is given to a caucasian resident. he is allowed to use the refrigerator to store milk. i placed items in the refrigerator was then thrown away by the caregiver. without informing me that they would be thrown away. i put some

other victims of the cobalt mining's christopher delivered six than howard. 10 bucks less than 40 m from sea level. i rise to reassess previous comment. people said i was a little harsh. it was argued that you personally could not be held to be responsible to be morally liable to the death of the portfolio boy that got run over by the metro card. after all, the secrets of events that led to that tragedy were not a consequence of your actions. you were not around when the system was designed where the trains ordered not your fault. but of your hands after constant. i would have found it hard to resist that argument except for the fact that automatic collision avoidance systems have been available for years and deployable in months if you try really really hard. for some of you, your services have been available for those years. maybe you are simply
10:57 pm
uninformed. maybe you were unable to try really really hard. i am informing you now there are better ways to do things. i am informing you now there are faster ways to do things. i am informing you now that i would have to testify years from now when your negligence now has enabled another such tragedy done have to testify when someone's weeping survivor tries to sue you into dirt. i would have to testify to the fact that you were present and you were informed. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> happy lgbt pride to everybody in san francisco. supervisor earlier said it three protests that his condo on 17th and market street. yes, there was a wiener roast whole jewish can meet

10:59 pm
concrete inhumanity of that is beyond comprehension. what would harvey milk say. would he also be embarrassed that a person's gait like myself represent such anti-gate, such homophobic, such despicable ways of looking at human beings. yes, this ethnic cleansing that continues to go on in san francisco is around us and very little is very done about it but i notice the word ethnic cleansing is being used more more in his chambers on the radio, in the media, and there is a reason for that because it buys what is happening. force location of 8000 latinos in the mission not willingly, but force people up to 90 years old. >> thank you. next speaker, please. >> i am -- fascists and
